Instead it's finding what's comfortable/doable for you within a specific framework (here: Paleo Diet) and making it a part of your life.
It's that framework that the author explorers in an entertaining, easy-to-digest way (whilst substantiating the do's and don'ts).
To make it complete, the author includes some easy, ready-to-cook recipes.
It's for everybody who want to know more about the Paleo Diet without being overwhelmed by tiresome theories.
So stop eating store bought food that comes in boxes, bottles, cans, etc., and get back to a natural and healthy diet. As the author states in the book "If I could hunt it... or pick it from the ground or from a tree and eat it, then it's something worth having in my diet." I find this simple idea to be very helpful to remind me what is good to add to my diet and what is not.
The author includes an extensive list of Plaeo friendly foods and beverages and a second list of foods that we should avoid. Animal proteins (lean meats & fish), veggies, fruits, berries and nuts, all these are good choices to add to your diet.
He also includes some relatively easy and tasty recipes to get you up and running with Paleo. The recipes are very down to earth.
For anyone new to the Paleo diet, Roger Thatt's book is a perfect starting place.
If you want to lose weight, if you want to attain optimal energy and health, this book will work wonders. Highly recommended.
With that said, it's still a non-fiction book that has a bunch of great paleo diet recipes. I haven't tried any of the recipes, but from looking at them they sound delicious.
The introduction, history, and the author's point of view is not only interesting, but funny. You learn a lot in the first few chapters of the book. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book when the author was talking about going to the gym:
"I'd rather sit at home sticking sharpened pencils in my eyes."
Great stuff. My Recommendation: BUY NOW
If you stop eating all of the packaged, processed and chemically altered foods you realize that you do not need any of that stuff.
This book does a great job of explaining how to adapt to the Paleo Diet.
It comes highly recommended!
First, the author speaks about how he lost weight while eating this way. Eating Paleo is NOT a diet for weight loss; some lose weight while eating this way, but it is about much more than losing weight. It is about taking care of your body and fueling it with high quality ingredients. Which brings me to my second point that the author skipped over: it is important to take into consideration the quality of the food that you are putting into your body. Paleo focuses on free range meats, grass fed beef, wild fish, and organic produce because of their high quality and nutrition content. Local and seasonal foods are also preferred. In regards to meat, he states "The leaner, the better, obviously." This may have worked for him as he was trying to lose weight, but many others who follow the Paleo approach do not limit their meats to only the lean cuts. Paleo does not avoid or demonize fat that is found in meats.
I recommend this book if you are interested in hearing one man's story about his experience with Paleo; if you want more information about the lifestyle, the guidelines, and the science behind it, then choose a different book.
